Select the best fishing charter for you:
How do I know what fishing charter is the best for me and also has the best value? The first thing you may like to do is to have all the following information available when you call to book your fishing trip; 1. How many persons are in your group and what are their ages? 2. Are you looking for a day of backwater fishing on a smooth brackish estuary off the Gulf of Mexico, or would you rather brave the sea and book an offshore charter with a wider variety of species and success? 3. How long would you like to be on the water? We offer trips from four hours up to an entire week of fishing excitement depending on your plans.
Now for us…
FET takes great pride in our professional fishing charter services.
Beginning with the proper equipment for the job, not only do we supply the top of the line gear for your trip, we also upkeep our vessels to the highest standards. You can rest assured, that you will be boarding a very clean and maintained fully operational boat. Equipped with GPS and current navigational systems as well as all certified coast guard required devices and more.
In the event of an emergency our crews are certified professionals experienced in dealing with any type of water situation. We are members and partners with the local Tow Boat US and Sea Tow Rescue Services which stand prepared at a moments notice.
Full moon and night trips are a great way to take advantage of Florida’s cooler climate as well as catching night feeding fish. It is proven that certain species of fish feed more at night during the full moon cycle because of stronger tides. We will target snook, tarpon, grouper, lane snapper, yellowtail snapper, mangrove snapper, mutton snapper, shark, and permit.
